Spreading Rainbows | Catherine Pooler Designs


I'm a huge fan of Catherine Pooler inks.  Did you see she released four new colors for the SPA collection?  It's their Beach Retreat Inks!

They're also releasing their Waves of Happiness today, so super cute!   Today's card features the new inks along with a digital they sent out with their recent newsletter.  I love how you can swipe their inks on cardstock and viola, colored cardstock.

Each strip is .75 inches wide and 4.0 inches wide.  I copic colored the star from the Let the Good Times Roll set.  It's out on my desk because my friend just got roller skates so we'll be skating on the weekends!  Wooo Hoo!

Which is your favorite new color?

Sea Glass

Bay Breeze


Cove Blue

Thanks to my friends at Catherine Pooler Designs for sending me their latest inks to play with!  They're always coloring my world with rainbows of color!

Happy Graduation | Reverse Confetti

Hello, I'm up on the Reverse Confetti Blog today sharing two cards.  I'm giving a sneak peek of one of them here.  

It's graduation season and we received a graduation announcement from one of my husband's family member. The first thing I do with a graduation announcement is google the school's colors.  This one was navy and gold, you can see that one on the Reverse Confetti blog.  Today I'm showing you my other graduation card that I designed.  It was inspired by my teamie Tricia.

I used a paler cardstock color that I had in my stash.  I teamed it up with gold and heat embossed the sentiment in gold too.  I also went with Tricia's idea of the polka dots which I stamped with an embossing ink pad and covered with sparkle embossing powder.

Make sure you stop by the Reverse Confetti blog to see my other version!

Thanks for stopping by today!

Hi There | Lawn Fawn


I needed to design a belated birthday card for my 17 year old niece so I decided to feature Lawn Fawn products, specifically their Virtual Friends set:

With Lawn Fawn's pending new release this week, I thought it might be a good idea to at least ink up something I picked up from their last release that needed to be used.  So many stamps, not enough time.  My time management has gotten very light in crafting.  I'm switching up my work schedule to create a better work | life balance.  This will give me one week day dedicated to my Mom.

I'm linking up to the current Lawn Fawnatics challenge:

Don't forget about the current Mother's Day Sale at Ellen Hutson's!
